User Reviews for Diamond Creek Vineyards Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 97ag

Winemaker's Notes:

Cool veins of graphite, pencil shavings, crushed rocks, plums, new leather, lavender and violets burst from the glass in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill. Powerful, rich and intense, the 2010 impresses for its balance, symmetry and class. The classic Volcanic Hill tannins are there, but they are beautifully balanced by the intensity of the fruit. Veins of intense savory notes, minerals and cedar add complexity on the layered, kaleidoscopic finish...97" Antonio Galloni 11/13 "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill comes from 8 acres planted in the white tufa/volcanic soils that make a sharp contrast with the red, iron-rich soils of Red Rock Terrace and the gravel-filled soils of Gravelly Meadow. This cuvee tends to be the most explosive and richest of the Diamond Creek Cabs. The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Volcanic Hill is more restrained and reserved on the nose. That restraint is unleashed in the mouth as this is the richest, fullest-bodied and most concentrated of this trio. Lots of blackberry, cassis, smoke and meaty barbecue notes can be found in this titan of a Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is very long. Forget this 2010 for 8-10 years and drink it over the following 30+...96+" WA 10/13 "Definitely on the comeback trail, this iconic winery, which is celebrating 40+ years in Napa Valley, has a resume that includes some of the greatest wines made in Napa during its heyday in the 1970s (the 1974, 1976s and 1978s).
